. this is not something we would want to pay for. >> mr. brooks is giving a scope of work and he just to find it as the language which is not in scope of work but rather an indication of what would be done anyway. >> i don't want to get hung up on the terminology. we believe that we can amend the contract. we can work with whoever to figure out what those tasks are. mr. brooks would like you to accept the list that has been prepared that we have objected to. we do not believe these of the tasks that are appropriate. we would like it to be included so that you can force the staff to agree with them rather than the regular negotiation process. >> we should not because -- i would be happy to go over this. this continue refers back to the 2007 ordinances which talk about a 360 megawatt program. we offered you a 30 megawatt program and one was to reduce debt and some because of the risk involved. trying to implement a program that we are not trying to implement is a strange thing to try to get someone to do. we're looking at a rollout and having someone to work for the 60 megawatt program which wo

with a man who is living and breathing this, has been for years, our project manager brooke. [applause] he is working closely with edgar lopez, who manages all of our major projects, but was here pretty much from day one. they are being supported by our city engineers and the rest of the department coming together to deliver a great project to the ratepayers of san francisco. we're so happy to be a part of this. congratulations to the puc on getting to this point, the topping off ceremony. [applause] >> as the owners, we are certainly willing to move in, but we are not building the building. representing the builders is andy of webcor. [applause] >> it is great to be here. most people do not realize this building almost did not happen. i was at a green building conference and i ran into mayor gavin newsom. he said, we are not going to build that building. we cannot afford to. i said, mayor, you cannot afford not to. this building will be an example of what all cities should build. with the energy savings that were mentioned, this building will be like no others. when the city starts to ope

comment? >> good afternoon, commissioners. i just want to reiterate mr. brookes points -- mr. bruck -- brook's . . as soon as that scoping is completed, we will be better able to understand those rates. basically, this is a comprehensive analysis of the potential short and long term employment options that will be offered by the program. this includes workers training, development, that will ensure local hiring and job retention numbers and emphasize a robust training. this also leads to other things such as local businesses, and also the ability to scope opportunities for local contractors. and especially in underserved communities. thank you. president vietor: thank you. additional comments? commissioners? ok, next item, please. i guess we're going to return back to this discussion. where are we -- >> madam president, regular business agenda item 9, a positive -- possible action to approve the project level scope, schedule, and budget of the june 2000 and revised water system improvement program and directs that to send a notice of change report to the california joint legislative

with in their further thoughts as well. are there public comments on this item? >> eric brooks, i am here representing san francisco green party. i was glad to hear a lot of commissioners raise a lot of concerns about financials of the potential for this program rolling out. you can potentially continue it or you can send it on to the board of supervisors. i know they are hot to put something forward on the second and we might want to afford them that opportunity. that item has to do with the local power part of that item has to do with preparation work for the local build out. years ago made very clear that the more of a local build of renewables and efficiency that your cca program has, the lower your price can be to your customers and a much lower -- the lower you can get all of the risks that you are talking about. i just want to correct a little bit your general manager. the advocate side of this debate if you can call it that hasn't been saying that you can do what the staff wants to do at pge prices. we know you can't do that. what we have been saying is that if you do the robust work we ask fo

with post-traumatic stress disorder. that was one of the ways that i met ms. brooks, because this bill before the mental health commission early, early on -- because i spoke to the mental health commissioner early on. i think my main interest in joining the mental health board is that in bayview hundred point, we really have seen almost no response to the violence that has been going on and a lot of the issues as a result of that violence. and having worked with folks from the public health department and social workers out there, really what i see is that people do not really know how to begin to deal with it. it is not that they do not care. it is that the problem is so overwhelming. we recently met with the cultural competency division in mental health with the department of public health, and they basically confirmed that the issue is so big, we do not even know how to begin to tackle it. and that is what i would like to bring. i think that we have some of the most severe issues going on right now in bayview hunters point around, you know, multiple, multiple homicides every year. i

brooks. i'm here representing san francisco green party and local grass roots organization in our city. i would policeman phi the err of frustration but take a slightly different trajectory, as i think a lot of us as advocates, i'm sure you have seen in the media, we have our own concerns about how the s.f. p.u.c.'s program may be moving forward, what the term sheet might look like. we have for several months gone back with s.f. p.u.c. staff and s.f. p.u.c. commissioners about the specific concerns. and i think that we've reached a point in that process where since the term sheet is just sitting at the s.f. p.u.c., it's become an insillar process and it's gone forward about as well as it can go. so i would agree that it's time now that ab-117 makes the board of supervisors the implementing body for this policy. it's time now for the term sheet to move from the s.f. p.u.c. and get to the board of supervisors, where we as advocates feel like we can in a new forum that's working actually to make this policy happen immediately, where we can work with the board of supervisors on the conce
